A Man’s Perspective: It’s Not All About Boobs and Butt

A good friend of mine once said, “As you get older the physical becomes less and less important.” I could not agree more. Do not get me wrong, an attractive exterior is still something to be admired and it will still attract one’s attention, but it will not create a strong connection or an everlasting impression.

Simple Pleasure #8: Hugging a Tree

Go on, hug one. It feels good. Do you know what trees do for us. I’m sure you do if you really think about it… they supply us with tasty, yummy oxygen. Yes, but do you know what else?

Trees alter the environment in which we live. They moderate the climate, improve air quality, conserve water, and harbor wildlife. Also they provide us a great way to get a…

Feeling a little unaccomplished I decided to go through my day and see all the things I have to be grateful for.   What I’m grateful for today: The simple fact that so many of take for granted is the ability to open my eyes when I awake.
